It gives its sincere pleasure lo stipport

hearty co-tiperalion of the Brazilian ami 
ot ter lailtes o( Pelropolis. Our Et.Blisli

-I lie Grangers' Hospital Huts far it coulii 
latt ly hope to acliieve the gratifying results 
ol the two recent entertainments in Pelro- 
polis witliout the assistance of others 
his assistance, both on the occasion ti'l 
llie Ball and on lliat of the Bazaar has 
been clieerfullv and cordially .riven ' The 
great success of the Bazaar has been very 
argely due to Hie assistance of tlie Btaziliat'i 
ladies and to the liberality of the Brazilian 
gentlemen. We are confident that every 
member of our colony-and we speak 
of the American and English colonies 
as one in tins respect-will join us in 
offering our grateful lltanks for this generous 
co-operation. The object may be in a 
measure restricted to ilie necessities of a 
smaU part ol the city's population, but its 
work is essentially for tiie general good and 
will, we hope, result iniio slight benefit to 
-II. Ihe better and more efficient we can 
take our iiospitals, the more quickly shall 
■e bring these frequently-recurring epi- 
demics ol fever under control, all of which 
will contribnle directly to the good repuft- 
lion and prosperity ol the city. 'J'he woi 



From the Chkngfl /jiicj/^-,,/,,,. ,- 

"We are constrained to point out lo the new 
ofhccrsofthe New York Life Insurance Company 
wherein, we believe, they will do irreparable injury 
to the cause of legitimate life insurance, to their 
own company, and to the interest of their American 
poicy.holders-present and prospective-if the 
radical departures of 'the Accumulation Policy' 
are introduced .vithoul material modification. The 
fact that old and new policy-holders mav alike 
avail themselves of the advantages olTeretl under 
this policy, will not help the matter one iota." 

From the Stitiji/i,y,i ,■ 

"Ifthe New York Life intends its neiv policv 
for use m any or all of the foreign countries in 
which It IS doing business, then we feel cinite 
certain that its proposed liberality to army and 
navy men is a mistake. Even in this conntry there 
might come a lime when it would be productive of 
very unfavorable results , " 

From iho Imurniia : 

"It is then quite conceivable that, in the highly 
probable event of a European war, whether gen 
eral or confined to two such nations as France and 
tj-ermany, the New York Life may lose a million 
dollars by one great battle. Since the last grand 
i™r, the art of killing has made tremen Sis 
advances, A batt e to-day between two large and 
well-equipped armies would mean terrible slaMiter 
One thing, however, is certain; and that i? that 
the cost, whether sufficient to threaten the com- 
pauys solvency or only enough to diminish its 

™f moi^'i" '"■' °"' °.'""' I'"''«^ of peaceful 
and, mainly, American policy-holders." 



• ' J ~- ^";. 1 lie woriv 

in which we are engaged is tllerefore one of 
-tiieral interest, and in thus ackiiowl- 
Igiiig the helplul services of our Brazilian 
fneiuls we can assure them that we shall 
seek to return the lavor by creating a hos- 
pital in which their interest and plide will 
be hardly less than our own.

Theke is one question connected with 

lite new Banco da Republica which de- 
mands consideration—tlie credit which it 
should enjciy abroad and which must br 

affected by the irregular and ijiegai char,ictee 

lis creation Let us consider the position 

ot the Rotlischilds, for instance. Thiso-reat 

financtal house must necessarily be lul'lv 

informed upon the laws and legislation of 

this country. They know tiiat the Brazil- 
ian executive has no constitutional anth- 

onty to make laws, 10 grant banking priv- 
ileges, to modify e.iiisting laws regulating the 

currency, or to authorize the issue of 

bonds, bonuses, or whatever other titles of 

credit Of national indebtedness. They know 

also, that at its last session the Brazilian 

Congress expressly refused to authorize Hie 

use of tlie national credit .as an aid lo in- 

dustiy. In the case of this new bank they 

will find that Minister Serzedello has done 
all of these unauthorized and illegal acts 

He has forced the surrender of t°wo banli 
charters and their fusion into one bank 
He has given this bank the sole ri<rht of 
issue, although several banks hold that 
right under the provisions of law. He has 
taken over Ihe deposits of these banks and 
IS using them [both gold and bonds] for 
the redemption of the currency. And lie is 
proposing to issue a new species of credit 
titles called ioniisa, to an aooregate of 
100,000,000$, which are to be° issued to 
beaier and accepted in payment of oblioa- 
lioiis to the state, thus forming a new des- 
cription of currency. Until some kind of 
legislative authorization is "iven these i»rpat „i„ 
^-^ers can nol help looking -:^:e'S Zm^TI^-SZ 



no; burning of the Lvceu de Aries e 
Ofticios on Sunday night has oecasionetl a 
loss .11 Ins city which will be deeply felt 
^ml which can not be too quickly remedied'. 
The school was in great part the crealion 
tif its enerjetic director, D,-. Betheucnurt 
.li|i hdva, anil was devoted wholly to the 
ed.cation ol the poor people. It was open 
!Jtni,glU, and its inslruclion was largely in- 
lUwniil in character, although manv li.ies 
ofinstrtiction were followed which weie 
deugiied simply |or the ordinaiy education 
ol clii dreu and young people who could 
u.( allord to attend dav schools. The 
teachers, vve believe, gave their services Iree- 
lyatid voluntarily, and the instrucdon was 
alai free , A visit to this school some years 
tig) was a veritable revelation to us, Hun- 
duds of boys and girls, young men and 
young women, were crowded into its class- 
rooms, iM engaged in recitation or study 
with an inlenlness rarely found in day- 
sctools It was one ol the hopeful signs 
fo, the lulure of Brazil, and the need of it 
to-day is even more urgent than it was then 
As the school w-as established thrott^h 
pr.vate initiatiye, and has been largely sii'p- 
pcrted by private donation.s, the rrovern- 
mmt giving the use of the buildings and a 
small subsidy, we would suggest' that its 
prompt restoration be made by private ef- 
forts. The government will undoubtedly 
gb-e the ground for a new building, and 
will certainly conlinue its subsidy. Now 
let Ihe citizens of this city take cllar"-e of 
Ih; work of properly rebuilding and endow- 
ing tins school ! Let it be made a model 
in coiislrnction and equipment and oriran- 
iz,ltlon! No money should be wasted in 
granite and omamentalion ; a plain fire- 
(iioofiron and brick building will meet all 
the requirements. If the republic is to suc- 
ceed It will be through the liberal use of 
just such instrumentalities as this industrial 
school and the people, of their own accord

not wanting. We shall hope 10 see a pop-

"A, occurred on n former case when the New

Massachusetts, w„ch was resisted by he State 
jinthoritte.s and abandoned by the company we 
hone. hat, Mr. McC.ll, when he has sonliS t^^e

Fruni the Chouku-: 

■■ The form ofcontiMct under which die members 
01 a hie insurance ccnnpany can safely asree to 
insure one another is, periaps, more important 
than any other consideration. As tliey trust the 
olhcers of the company to emend ilicir money 
wisely and economically, so do the members trust 
the officers to make wise suggestions and prudent 
and safe modifications when changes are niade in 
policy contracts, *^ * * . " 

" the New York Life its actuaries and lis medi- 
cal direc ors. must heed the challenge thus laid 
doiyn andjustify, rf they can, the radical nature of 
their new departure. They must answer the 
charges of sensationalism and recklessness, and 
e.Npl«in how the policy-holders in their company, 
old or new, can be beneSted by the removal ..f 
safegtiards which other companies, even the most

From the //;j;,r,„;rr .■ 

" It will naturally take sometime for the truth of 
the matter, the real significance of this radical 
departures to get around to policy-holders and to be 
uiiierstood by them. But it will get there aud it 
will be undcntood. 'iliey will be made to see 
that business, new business, a vast bulk of new 
business, got for bulk rather than quality, must be 
paid for out of their pockets, that their lividends 
will have to suffer , and they will want lo knowand 
will have the right, to ask what the managers of 
their property can hnd to say by w.ay of justification 
tor so extraordinary a procedure. "

iSth, 1S93, 



Froai the Chimga !>tvesfisaU>- : 

"We are constrained to point out to the new 
officers of the New Vork Life Insurance Company 
wherein, we believe, they will do irreparable itljury 
to the canse of legitimate fife insurance, to their 
otvn company, and to the interest of their American 
po icy.holtlers-present and prospective-if the 
radical clepartnres of 'the Accumulation PoUcy' 
are introduced auihout material modification. The 
fact that old and new policy-holders may alike 
avail themselves of the advantages offereil under 
this policy, will not help the matter one iota. " 

From lU S/nml.ird ; 

"Ifthe New York Life intends its new policy 
for use ,n any or all of the foreign coimtries ii, 
which It IS doing business, then we feel oiiiie 
certain that its proposed liberality to army and 
mivy men is a mistake. Even in this conntry there 
might come a time when it would be proiltictive of 
very unfavorable results . " 

From the Iiisiiintici : 

"It is then quite conceivable that, in the highly 
probable event of a European war, whether gen- 
eral or conl^netl to two such nations as France and 
Germany, the New York Life may lose a million 
tlollars by one great battle. .Since the last grand 
var, the art of killine has made tremendous 
adrances, A battje to-tFay between two large and 
w ell-cqnipped armies would mean terrible slaughter. 

tbeVi","^' uT'^'J'^ '""''•■• ™'' ''■»' is that 
the cost, whether sufficient to threaten the com- 

s^'imd.f/ ??*■ °' ""'y '"™b'' "> 'l""'"i'k its 
surplus, would come out of the pockets of peaceful 
and, mainly, American policy-holders." 



It gives its sincere pleasure lo stipport 
the cortlial acknowledgement of tlie Bazaar 
commiltee in lespect to the a,s.sistance ami 
hearty co-operation of il,e Brazilian and 
oilier lailies of relropolis. Our EiiRlisli 
colony is a small one, and nolwithslandin" 
tlie great liberality sliotvn in the fotindin" 
of I he Strangers' Hospital tiitts far it conid 
liaix ly liope to achieve the gratifying resnits 
ol die two recent entertainments in Petro- 
polis without the assistance of oliiers 
This a.ssistaiice, boll, on the ticcasion o'l 
the Ball and on that of the Bazaar has 
been cheerfully and cordially given ' The 
great success of the Bazaar has been very 
argely due to Ihe assistance ol the Jirazilian 
lathes and to the liberality ol the Brazilian 
gentlemen. We are coiifitlent that every 
member of our colony-,a„d tve .speak 
ol the American and English colonies 
as one in this respect-will join us in 
offering our grateful thanks for this generous 
co-operation. The object may bo in a 
measure restricted to the necessities of a 
sma I pan of the city's population, but its 
work IS essentially (or the general good and 
wall, we hope, result in no slight benefit to 
all. Ihe better and more efficient we can 
make our hospitals, the more quickly shall 
we bring these frequently-recurring epi- 
demics ol fever under coutt'ol, all of which 
will contribute directly to the good reputa- 
tion and prosperity ol the city. The work 
in which we are engaged is therefore one of 
general interest, and in tims acknoivl- 
edgiiig the helpful services of our Brazilian 
friends we can assure them that we shall 
seek 10 return the favor by creatine a hos 
pilal in which their interest and pride will 
be hardly less than our own.

affected by the irregular and illegal charactee

01 the Rothschilds, for instance. This great

this country. They know that the Brazil- 
ian executive has no constitutional auth- 
ority to make laws, to grant banking priv- 
ileges, to modify existing laws regulatiu" the 
currency, or to authorize the issu°e of 
bonds, bonuses, or whatever other titles of 
credit or national indebledness. They know 
also, that at its last session the Brazilian 
Congress expressly refused 10 authorize the 
use of the national credit as an aid to in 
duslry. In the case of this new bank they

pfteios on Sunday night has occasiouetl a 
losj n, ins cty which will be deeply felt 

a.,,1 which can not be loo quickly remedied. 
The school was in great part the creation 
ofllsenergelic director. Dr, Betheucniirt 
ila,hilva, and tvas devoted wholly lo the 
edicalion o( the poor people. It was open 
tit night, and its instruction was larirdv 
dmlnal ,n character, allhotigh many linos 
ofinstrticlion were followed which were 
dengued simply (or llie ordinary education 
ofdiiklren and yoting people 'who could 
nrt afford to attend dav schools. The 
teachers, we believe, gave'their services free- 
ly and voluntarily, and the inslruction was 
also free. A visit to this school some years 
ag, was a veritable revelation lo us. Hun- 
drds of boys and girls, young men and 
young 'xomm, were crowded into its class- 
rooms, ill engaged in recitation or study 
with an intentness rarely found iu day- 
sc'iools It was one ol the hopeful signs 
fo: the future of Brazil, and the need of it 
to-day IS even more urgent than it was then 
As the school was established iliroufli 
pr.vate initiative, and has been largely sup- 
pirled by private donations, the' govern- 
m;nl giving the use of the buildingi and a 
small subsidy, we would suggest' that its 
prampt restoration be made by private ef- 
forts. The government will undoubtedly 
. mnd for a new building, and 
II certainly continue its subsidy. Now 
lei the citizens of this city take charge of 
the work of properly rebuiitling and endow- 
n,g this school I Let it be made a model 
in construction and equipment ami oi^an- 
izition! No money should be w.asted in 
granite and ornamentation ; a plain fire- 
proof iron and brick building will meet all 
the requirements. If the republic is to suc- 
ceed ,t will be through the liberal use of 
JiBtsiich instrumentalities as this industrial 
school and the people, of their own accord 
should see to it that these inslitulions are 
not wanting. We shall hope to see a pop-

lack of conr'rcsy and hreacli of failh. On two

hilt having matle a resolution it certainly should 
not change it a ^kw hours after, deliiierately deceiv- 
int,' several hundred people and putting them to 
serious inconvenience and even distress. If the 
board were made to respond fur the losses thus 
occasioned it might act in .1 more responsible 
manner hereafter. Indeed, ihrongbout, the Argen- 
tine hoard has behaved in an arbitr.iry off-hand 
manner, quite uncalled for by tlie circumstances of 
the case, and which will nssuredlv leave consider- 
able soreness behind on tliis side of the water. 
Ifowcvcr, the want of understanding and .!Ci ■ vd 
between the two hoards has long been Cuu .^\- 
ciious, and neillior can afford to cast stones at the 
other, for neither is blameless, livery additional 
circumstance strengihcns our conviction that, with 
the evident inability of the boards as at present 
constituted to adhere to any mutual agreement, 
the question will never be satisfactorily at rest 
until there is appointed one international lioard 
with control throughout the River Plate.

—A ISlumenaii telegram of tlie 25th announces 
the arrest of l>r. Treraclio J.u/, chief of the lai!d 
commission, and others, who are .accused of being 
the authors of the attack on the police commissary 
of the place. 

—The di'icowry of the alleged plot against the 
governor of S. Paulo leads one to inquire when ibc 
next election is to bo held in that state. S. Paulo 
plots have the peculiarity of being discovered just 
before election d.ay. 



— Altliough the milit.u'v and police forces in So 
Paulo have been held in readiness, and a '.an 
nanicil I.oiisada was arrested and was mysterioily 
reported ilead in the police station, the oftial

town 'ifOi^apava, Rio Grande, which had filen 
into the hands of the federalists on the 16th, vas 
retaken by Gov. Castilhos' forces on the 24th, It 
is said that there was a fight, but as no casuaics 
arc reported it was probably at long range. 

A Sao Paulo telegram to the Jantal do Cm- 
'(), dated the 22nd, reads as follows: "1 is 
reported that some explorers of the spirit ofiat- 
riotism are seeking to create new diploratic 
([uestions, in virtue of recent occurrences." Vill 
someone tell us what this means ? 

— The Jm-nn} do Commercio hears that the ana- 
ment destined for the federalists of Rio Grade, 
which was seized by the Argentine governmen on 
the launch Carmdiia, consisted of 600 cavalry:ar- 
bines, 80 rirtes, 500 sabres and 150,000 cartrit^es. 
The telegra])h had more than doubled the quarity. 

— The Gcnittinia of the 25th says that 376 er- 
sons died in Santos of yellow-fever from the i: to 
the 2lst inst. Of these 98 were Portuguese 67 
.Spaniards, 35 Germans, 26 Rraxilians. 20 Scndi-

The highest number of fatal cases in one clay was 
on the 2ist Mdien they reached 32, 

-In S. Paulo 133 republicans held a mecing 
on the 2otb inst,, at the republican club, for the 
purpose of selecting a candidate for the feeral 
senate and two for the chamber of deputies. For 
the former Councillor Rodrigues Alves recfved 
129 voles and for the latter Alberto Salles reccved 
[27 votes and Vieira Bueno I2g. 

— Affairs in Pcrnambuco are again becoiing 
critical, and the deposition of Gov. Rarbosa jima 
is being plotted. The visit of Martins Junitr to 
this city was ujiparently to secure the assent the 
President, nnd was successful if .ill report! are 
true. When llarbosa t.ima is out, Martins Jinior 
expects to be elected governor, and then everyhing 
will be lovely. 

—There were reports in Pcrnambuco on thi 25th 
that the government at Rio de Janeiro does not 
apjirove of the conrhict of Gen. Roberto Fcrreira 
in inlcrfering in the local affairs nf that state. 
There was less erccitement in consequonco. The 
I'crnambucanos, however, should not m deceived 
into false security, Gen. Roberto is not ihel man 
to follow a policy of non-interference. {

that ex-minister Antao de Faria advises his friends 
not to lake purl in the revolutionary movement in 
Rio Grande, alleging that IJarros Cass,al has 
discovered that the revolutionists arc in favor of 
the restoration of the monarchy, 

— The body of Louzada, who lost his life in the

police say that he committed suicide. 

—The unrivalled Dr. Martins Junior, i}olitical

— There was a serious conilict in I'ha, Muias 
Geraes, on the l()th inst., caused by the nnmic pal 
elections. A telegram of the 20th says that Dr. 
(.'amillo do Moura, Dr. Carlos Peixoto de Mcura 
and two other physicians were killed, and odier 
persons were gravely wounded. Another tcleg .am 
adds Cob Joao Esteves and Capt. Gemiino EsUves 
to the list of killed. It is far from being a hopiful 
outlook for the republic if a petty municipal eleclion 
IS to occasion such a slaughter as this. 



KIO Gk'ANDE DO SUl. 
On the early morning of the 33rd inst. Gen, 
Tavares, at the head of bis troop.s, appeared in fmnt 
of D. Pcdrito, having surrounded that place, which 
was defended by a re^iuieiit of regular cavalry and 
ail irregular body of Castilhislas, all commanded 
by Col. Barhosa. Alter skirmishing for half-fln- 
hour, Tavares ordered Rarbosa to surrender the 
place. The latter replied that iie would do his 
duly as a soldier and thai, before laldng further 
stejis, he would hold a cmiicil ol war. A half-an- 

r Inter Ca[)t. Hraulio made Ids appearance at 
the point where the lroo|is uncier fuvencio dw 

mlnija were stationed and asked for limeto con- 



siller the maUer, A while flag was lioisled by the 
Caslillustas and Tavares sent an officer to parley. 
This officer was leeeived with a volley of niiiskeiry, 
by whicli he wis dangerously wnunded. It wiis 
then two o'clock p,ui. and Tavaiea ordered a gen- 
eral attach, wliicli wis made in three cnhiinns, one 
of tlieni headed by Gumersindo Siraiva, another by 
Douiingos Ferreir.! and the ihifd by Thoina;i 
Mercio, The Cuitilliista pickets were driven in 
and the garii-ion eiilreiiclied itself in its barracks 
anil in the adj'iiniug houses and yArd^. Tlie Ih-e 
was kept u|) for four hours, and between 6 and 7 
o'clock p,ni. Geii. Tavares witiidre*v bis fnrces to 
prevent their committing any excesses during llie 
niybt. Early next morning the garrison surren- 
dered uiiconditiouatly. The regiment of regular 
cavalry lost during the engagement zo men killed 
nnd 40 wounded, while the Io,ss among tlie 
irregular iroops of the Castilhislas is said to have 
been heavy. That nf Tavares' Iroops is reported to 
have been light. The total luss on bolh sides is 
estimaiedat 15S killed and wounded. One lliou- 
sand stand of arms, 700 horses nnd a considerable 
quantity of munitions nf w.»r fell into the hands nf 
the victors. The officers of the garrison were 
paroled, binding themselves not to lake no arms 
during the w.tr, aiui the men j-iined Gen. Tavares. 
The rifles captured by Tavares are said to be of 
the Winchester palern. 

It is reported that the Castilhista forces under 
Menna liarrcto nnd Arthur Oscar have received 
orders to fall b.ick to liage. A federalist force that 
was ill the Argentine province of Corrientes, oppo- 
site Uruguayana, tinder the command of Tico 
Tede, Eduardo Lima and F<niloura, has crossed 
the liver and is on lis way to join Tavares, having 
received instructions to avoid an engagement with 
the garrison at Uruguayana. The telegraph wires 
have been cut by friends of Tavares (with whom 
tiie great majority of the people of Rio Grande 
appear to sympathize) not only between S. Lour- 
engo and Camaqiian, but also between Porto Alegre 
and Morreles. No lelegrams from Porto Alegre 
liave recently been received hete. Cnfapava, it is 
said, has fallen into the hands of the federalists. 
If this is true, the place was captured by a local 
band, and indeed it is probable that after llie vie 
tory nt 0. Pedritn, ihere will be a general rising 
against the Caslilliista government all over the 
slate. 

The general government iias ordered to Rio 
Grande a part of the forces stationed in Parana and 
the 31st battalion of infantry, which was stationed 
at Ouro Preto, capital of Minas Geraes. It is 
reported on the sireet that the batlaliims slalioned 
in (his capital refused to go. 



f^ospiTAL Notes. 

—The directors of the Hospitil have just cng. 
aged another [rained nurse in England, who wfll 
be arriving here in about a month. This ims baen 
made necessary by tlie circumstance that ihe 
Hospital must have two separate nursing stalTf. 
one for the fever wards, and one for the general 
wards, . 

— The H.iznar given in Petmpolis on the 23r<l 
nnd 24lh inst. was a most gralilyitig success, Tlie 
ntlen. lance was inrge, nnd the fun was tliorougldv 
enjoyed notwithstanding the price paid for it. Tlie 
greatest credit is due the ladies of the eouimittee 
for the organization and manageinent of the affair. 
As the returns are not all in, it is impossible tJ 
state the amount received, but we are assured tlist 
it will exceed all expectations. 

— .According to the statutes of the .Strangers' 
Hospital Association, the active membership and 
benefits ol ihe .same are made contingent upon the 
payment of an annual subscri|)lioii, No other 
tiualificatioii was found practicable. We refer to 
tills because Ihere are still many wlio have not 
paid annual subscriptions and are therefore not 
niemliers nor eiitilleil to the benefits of the hospital, 
although they have given donations. This may 
be due to some confusion regarding the payment 
of donations and subscriptions the same year.

f>^AiMioAn Notes 



—It is announced that Lieut. -Col, Souza .'\guiar 
will resume direction of the Central railway in a 
few days, 

—According 10 an explanation published in the 
newspapers, it ap])e.irs that ihe dismissal on the 
22nd of the assistanl-cliief of traffic on the Centra! 
railw.ay was due to his having expressed an oninion 
anninst some measure proposed by Minister Limpo 
de Abreu during a recent visit to the offices of 
that line. The minister evidently wants no inde- 
pendent opinions in liis department. 

— The governor of Espirito Santo has granted a 
privilege, for 50 years, for a railway of 60 centi- 
metres gauge, to start from some convenient )ioint 
on the Caranijola line and run to Cachoeiro de 
Ilapemirini. We know nothing of the prospects of 
the road, but it is certainly a mistake to adopt the 
gauge ]MOposed. The new line should have the 
Caraugola gauge, so that the cars of either line can 
be transferred to the other. 

—It is far from impossible that the abrupt dis- 
missal of Sr. Rademaker, the acting director of the 
Central railway, and of Sr, Andrade Pinto, the 
acting chief of traffic, will lead to a cabinet ques. 
tion. The charges against the engineer appointed 
to succeed Sr. Andrade Pinto are not to be passed 
over, and the card this gentleman published is an 
indictment of Sr. Limpo de Abreti, the minister of 
the department in charge of the railway service. 
Even Paiz has thrown a stone— albeit but a 
pebhle~at Minister Ahreu. 

—On the 22nd the minister of agriculture ap. 
pointed Sr. I'^'ancisco Xavicr Gomes to succeed 
Dr. Jorge Rademaker as director ad interim of the 
Central railway. The new director is an unknown 
man and no good results are aulicipaled from the 
cliange. During the adininislralion of Dr. Rade- 
maker considerable improvement has been ncliieved 
in the .administration of that road, but as he does 
not enjoy Ibe all jiotent lavor of Ihe minister he 
has been compelled to give place to an untried 
man. It is to be feared that a change is needed in 
the caiiinet as well as in llie railway department. 

—It was reported in Santos on the 251I1 that the 
Mogyann would effect a fusion wilh llie Sorocahana, 
in order to secure a route to Sanlos. The tele- 
gram adds : " IJusiness men generally approve 
this solution, the only one fe.asible {fapazV' This 
apparently confirms ihe report current a few weeks 
ago liiat the new Mngyana line would not be built. 
The Sorocahana route will be a long one for the 
Mogyana, but it will afford a second line for the 
receipt of material which will be of immense bene- 
fit 10 the interior districts of the stale. The par- 
tizans of the department nt industry, etc., who 
have so oiistinalely opposed the S. Paulo contract, 
will he considerably surprised at this UewdeparUire.

— We are glad lo say that the postoffice has at

— Tlie Gazeiitda Tinv/i- has published a biograiihy 
111 Gen. Silva Tavares, llie feileralist leader in Kio 
Grande, 1>» which il is shown that he is 74 years 
old. It is hardly llie age at which men are accus- 
tomed to incite revolutions 1 

—Two negroes became involved in a quarrel at 
a kiosque in Pra9i Gen. Osorio on the ajtii, when 
one of llietn suddenly drew a knife and slabbed the 
other in the neck. The wounded inaii bled to 
death in a few minutes. The assassin was 
captured. 

— AccorrlinK lo a Rahia telegram of the 251I1 
Srs. Luiz Vianna and Kuy Birliosa have liad a talk 
about the siluntnm and are agreed tliat the next 
President shonld be a military man. They are 
apparently in no hurry lo abolisli the evils which 
are causing so much injury to the country. 

— I^Lxpedments were made at the gas company's 
offices on the 26tli wiih a new gas stove for cooking 
purposes. Tlie experiments were highly success- 
ful, the cooking lieing done easily, quickly and in 
the best manner. It is not improbable that gas 
ciHiid be used to great advantage in tins climate for 
cooidng purposes. 

— The 24tli was observed as a holiday, lieing Ihe 
and anniversary of the adoption of the constitution. 
In view of liie fact that the constitution is prac- 
lieally a dead letter, and that it is observed only 
when it is convenient to do so, perlinps it would 
have been better not to have called so much atten- 
tion to the document. 

—The good citizens of Guaratiba, which lies 
within the federal district, rose in their sovereign 
might on the 24lh and deposed their police si'i!>- 
delfgado. Il is quite in harmony with the policv 
now dominant in Brazil, Subsequent reports state 
that the deposed ofHeial is hack in his ofHice and 
the s. p. are at peace with ail the world. 

—We do not wish to interfere with the income 
of any of our IocaI contemporaries, but would it 
not be better lo suppress all such puldic discussions 
as that relating 10 Dr. Abel Parenie's pretended 
discovery. They certainly can not serve any moral 
or educational purpose, while in many cases, 
especially in ihe iiaiids of seiisalional journalists, 
they are simply disgusting and offensive. 

—It is worthy of note that many articles of food 
imported Irom loreign ports are much cheaper than 
Ihe domeslic jn-uduct. For instance, American 
pre.served sliiimps, m tins, are much cheaper tlian 
those caught in itie bay, at our very door. French 
"string beans," in tins, cost less than half the 
price of the domestic product in the maiket, And 
so on through a long list. The question arises in 
this respect- what does Brazil inlend to do? 
Suspend productiou and live on the foreigner, or— 
go to work i* 

—It is stated by a gentleman who is well Informed 
on the subject that the agents and representatives 
of various companies and syndicates for the impor- 
tation _ of Chinese laborers, have succeeded in 
collecting hundreds of contos from planters in 
advance payments on orders given. One agent 
alone is said to have obtained .about 120,000$, and 
has retired to Buenos Aires to enjoy it. The whole 
scheme is full oi swindles, as time will prove, but 
it is difficult to work up much sympathy for the 
victims. _ It might be well, however, for the jial- 
riotic national press to sound a note of warning.

nURhUMG OF T/IE LYCEU. 
On Sunday last, a little after 10 o'clock p. m., 
Ilie r.yceu de Aries e Officios, situated on Rua 
Ouarda vellm, op|iosile die opera-house, was (lis- 
covered lo be on fire. Shortly afterwards Ihe 
firemen arrived, bnt, for want ol water, were nn- 
able lo make efficienl use of tlieir engines. Tl was 
consequently impossible lo save the buddin ', which 
was loially destroyed. Al! of the persons residing 
111 Ihe building were saved, including ihe director 
Commendador Belhcnci:mri da Silva. and his family' 
The greater part of the (urnilure on the ground 
floor and some of that on the first door was also 
saved ; but ihe greater part of [he conien u ol the 
building, including a valuable library of 4000 
volumes, was destroyed. The news of [he burnin.r 
ol the Lyceu caused great excilemeiit and many 
l)ersons assembled in Ihe vicinity lo witness the 
conflagration, completely blocking ihc neighbor- 
ing slreels. Ttie light of the flames eiiienled to a 
gi-eal distance, and the Iieat was so iiUense as lobe 
fell on Largo da Carioca two blocks riislanl. No 
lives were lost, but several persons were wounded. 
The building belongs to the government and was 
nninsured. Some nf the furniture was insured, but 
lor a sum much below its value.

MARKET REPORT. 

ffio (ie Junei'o. 27th February, 1893. 
Exports, 
Coffce.-Thete ha.s becu a fait business doing, and sales 
reported will icadi about 60.000 bags (vr iht week. Tbe 
exchaiiae market bas been itreBiilarnfiain and the tendency 
appearing to be l»ward5 lower rates, ihecofiec dealers have 
been firm, snd ibc m.irkel closed slrong on Saturday, the 
quotations wbich we give below representing ratbcr the ideas 
Df buyers, iban those of sellers. On the sand brokers quoted 
No. 7 at 17*700, but on the asth an advance of 300 rs. was 
reported, nud the decline for the week is only 100-100 rs. per 
arroba. Receipis hrve fallen oft. bnl slijpmeuts are limited 
by some cause, probably the recently purchased coflee is not 
ready, and stock is increased again by some 13,000 bags. 
Tne average receipts this month wilt be nearly 9,500 bags per 
day, against the Citiinaie made early in the month of 7,^00 
bags; ibe high quotations sent from Rio have undoubtedly 
had a good deal of influence on planleis, but wliclher receipis 
for the current crop year of 9,750,000 bags, with four months 
still before ns, should lead to .in expectation of an export of 
over 3,000,000 bags is .as ycl a doubtful question . 

The weekly report from Santos gives receipts of 53,000 bags 
(for six days), sales of 18,000 bags and stock jis'ooo bags. 
The market was reported firm at 12^400 per 10 kilos, for 
Good average; an .advance ol aou rs, for the week.
